Thread Name: Origins: History of 'Run, Come See Jerusalem'
Subject: RE: Origins: History of 'Run, Come See Jerusalem'
FYI that's: Neely, Wayne, The Great Bahamas Hurricane of 1929, (Nassau, Media Pub., 2013)
Bahamiana sorta getting lost in the merged threads:
One (1) storm; two (2) songs (this thread only) like the Ballad Index note says: NOTES [17 words]: While the storm described is the same one described in "Run Come See," this is an independent song. - PJS
The September Songs thread might/would/should list both song titles.
FYI the previous ('28) September: Lyr Add: Somebody Got Drowned (Palm Beach 1928) is one storm with a half dozen or so songs (minimum.)
Also, Bahamians don't spell like they speak any more than Texans or Londoners. The vessel was real. Her name was the Pretoria (see Neely, above.) If one is writing about the real world that's how to spell it.
